We believe that you are worth the investment. If this sounds like a fair deal to you, then keep reading!
DO I QUALIFY TO RECEIVE A CAR?
Are you on the road to self-sufficiency but struggle with transportation? Are you ready to gain access to better employment opportunities and want to enjoy personal independence? Women With Drive Foundation is a nonprofit organization that helps individuals who want to work to help themselves by providing safe, reliable cars and a chance for an improved life. To qualify for a car through WWDF, all individuals must meet the following criteria:
- You must have a job or verifiable job offer.
- You must be currently accepting state benefits (ie. WIC, ADC, Food Stamps)

- Able to pay for your insurance and fees for taxes, registration and title.
- Under the age of 25, you must have parental responsibilities.
